Device Holder (ARDH)

Due to zero gravity in space, astronauts sleep in“sleeping bags” that attach by Velcro to a platform bed or a wall. When they want to read in bed their e-readers and tablets often float away.The ARDH is a fully functional tablet and e-reader stand that would Velcro to the astronauts “sleeping bag." The ARDH has a 300mm by 150mm platform suspended from two 194mm pillars attached to a base. The cross-bar with the platform will snap into fit and will rotate so that the astronaut can read at a comfortable angle.The astronauts will attach the tablet/e-readers to he stand with Velcro and are able to use the tablet/e-reader and not have to struggle to keep the tablet/e-reader from floating away from them in the zero gravity situation.
